Strange pop-up when logging out of

  MPN1A 19:00 11 Sep 2018

I have just clicked to log out of but instead of normal logout a pop-up appeared. It said "Message from web page. Do you really want to leave this page?". It had buttons for leave or stay. I have never seen this in years of using Hotmail. Is this something new or is it malicious? I didn't click anything but couldn't get out of Hotmail so I played safe by restarting the computer.

What it means is that you have an incompleted task. Perhaps you started an email and didn't send it

Thanks.It's possible that I accidentally clicked the close page X instead of the logout. I'll experiment later.

No, it wasn't that and I hadn't been trying to send an e-mail. It hasn't happened since.

Write a few words into a new email and then try yo Log Out, before you've sent it

No, that didn't do it. I think that I'll just write it off as one of those things. Thanks, anyway.
